Skybound has built themselves a nice little empire off the huge success of The Walking Dead, and they are once again celebrating that fact with a batch of San Diego Comic Con exclusives. What I’ll give Kirkman and the Skybound team is this– they always work with some great people on their products, and the lineup of talented creators and companies that made this year’s exclusives is no different.
Topping the list for many collectors will be the all new Ezekiel figure from McFarlane Toys. Unlike last year’s kitbashed Governor in battle armor, the Kingdom’s leader is an all new sculpt, and adds another cool new face to McFarlane’s ever growing Walking Dead toy line.
But the replica Lucille bat from October Toys is pretty great, too, offering a nice three dimensional translation of Negan’s weapon of choice. And the Rick Grimes and Invincible mini figures feature some great stylized sculpts by Scott Tolleson. And if you’re into October Toys’ PVC miniatures, SDCC will offer up three new characters for that collection, in variant colorways.
Read up on all the exclusives here… which ones are you excited to add to your collection?
